Xbox Series X full specifications have been revealed today by Digital Foundry.
The next-gen console produces 12 teraflops of power and the 6 CPU cores are speedy at 3.6Ghz with hyper-threading enabled. When hyper-threading is off, the cores can operate at 3.8GHz.
~Andrew Goossen, Microsoft12 TFLOPs was our goal from the very beginning. We wanted a minimum doubling of performance over Xbox One X to support our 4K60 and 120 targets. And we wanted that doubling to apply uniformly to all games.
To achieve this, we set a target of 2x the raw TFLOPs of performance knowing that architectural improvements would make the typical effective performance much higher than 2x. We set our goal as a doubling of raw TFLOPs of performance before architectural improvements were even considered – for a few reasons. Principally, it defined an audacious target for power consumption and so defined our whole system architecture.
Below, you'll find the Xbox Series X full specifications, in comparison to Xbox One X and Xbox One S.
The next-gen Xbox Series X console will head to stores this coming holiday season.
